Iconoclast

We write on tablets
not made of stone
we express feelings
not quite our own

we push our bodies
we stretch our minds
bubble wrap existence
spending ourselves blind

misinformation
artificial news
red meat reporting
the cure for the blues

the end of the world
happens every day
turn on the big screen
turn our earnest eyes away

poor people are a
dime a dozen
it's hand-to-mouth
and one in the oven

leaders make war
gung-ho crack appeal
money monkeys
got that late 1920s feel

shoot the mirror
to hell with this place
I need a transfusion
I need uncommon grace

misinformation
artificial head
alternative realities
the comfortably dead.
